Welcome to the home page of the "Sky Spy" - An airborne Bayesian colortracking project! This project set it's goal in developing a model helicopter which is designed to be used for professional photo and motion picture production. The project started at the University of Kiel in spring 2004 with support from the "Technologiestiftung Schleswig-Holstein"
